Lean, opening blossom, down towards me
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Lean, opening blossom, down towards me,
And what I whisper do for me
Come, let me gather and clasp thee.
With me thou shalt find sunshine,
Lulled by these arms of mine,
To flower let me woo thee.

From a Quilter score.
